I've been surfing on sit on tops for 4 years and the Perception 5-0 is the only truly surf capable sit-on top I've had the pleasure to use.

What is good: This kayak performs like a wave-ski in medium to large surf. The quality of the fittings and the finish are great. In fact this is the only sit-on top on the market whose fittings are safely up to the job of rolling in big surf!

What is not so good: The 5-0 is slow on flat water, but that is not the point it is a surf-orientated craft. However, it is big and heavy (20 kilos) and is overkill for someone my size (10 stone and 5'7"), probably more suited to the heavier paddler.

Summary: the best sit-on top for surf there is, but why oh why don't Perception design a scaled down model for smaller paddlers?
